Even if you live and work in the city, you grew up in the countryside and always knew that you wanted to get married there. Does this sound like you? Or perhaps you did not grow up in the country, but just love spending time there with your partner. Whatever reason for your decision to get married in the country, you will find plenty of inspiration when it comes to real country weddings in the section. Perhaps you love the idea of getting married in a country house hotel or having a marquee or tepee in a field? You will hopefully find plenty of ideas when it comes your venue whilst looking at our country weddings.

You will also find inspiration in this section when it comes to country bridesmaid ideas, as well as decoration ideas for your ceremony and reception. For country weddings, there is nothing nicer and more stylish than trying to incorporate nature into your reception i.e. tying your napkins with ribbon and lavender or leaving miniature bottles of honey as wedding favours.
